“All You Need Is Love”, Five silly words from a Beatles song, so cliche yet so apt.

Love is one of the few words in the English language that cannot be defined by words alone.

Webster’s Dictionary defines love as:

a (1) : strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties  (2) : attraction based on sexual desire : affection and tenderness felt by lovers (3) : affection based on admiration, benevolence, or common interests
b : an assurance of affection

It scarcely does justice to convey what love really is. Love is not simply an intense feeling of deep affection, a sexual desire in someone or even a need to care for someone.

Love is...Love is a storm, a torrent of emotion that flows through us like a song that flows on the air.
Love is a rock, that holds us to the shore and gives us something worth fighting and living for.
Love are the arms that carry us out of the darkest despair, out of the depths of Hell and shows us the light of a new day.
Love is the sweet breath of your newborn child as they lay swaddled in your arms.
Love is the soft, leathery skin of the person you love, holding your hand as you take your last breath.
Love is knowing that each day can be better than the last.
Love is the light of the sun as it hits your face in the early morning hours of the winter, showing you that despite the brutal cold… There is warmth.
Love is music as it swaddles you, making you dance, making you sing, making you live.
Love creates our life and helps it pass with dignity and in the end it comforts us.
Love is… The definition of the human soul.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
